Am I the only Obama supporter who doesn't care that McCain can't remember how many houses he owns? Again, I'm not an undecided. I guess there is a swath of them who find this offensive, and maybe there's a way to put this to use. I'm really not seeing it though.

Also, I know we're heavy on Obama today, but come on. I gave you some Robotech. Robotech.

UPDATE: For the record, I may be off the mark on this--as it looks like I was about the elitist ad. I just don't much care for this whether it's Dems or the GOP. But I'm not the target voter either.

UPDATE #3: Obama on the stump hammering the point.Looks a little uncomfortable to me.

UPDATE #4: Ok, Ok, I give. It's Karl Rove's world--I'm just blogging in it.
